Pakistan cricketers Salman Butt and Mohammad Amir have flown to Dubai, hoping to get suspensions lifted and to play in the series against South Africa.

The International Cricket Council's code of commission will hear appeals by the pair in Dubai this weekend.

Butt said prior to his departure Friday that he is innocent and "hopefully within the next two days things will be cleared." Amir said he also hopes to be cleared and join the team. The ICC suspended Butt, Amir and Mohammad Asif in September after a British tabloid showed an agent accepting money for deliberately bowling no-balls in a test against England to fix spot-betting markets.

Asif has withdrawn his appeal.
